wtf! this is amazing. it is the first nebula compressor that actually works!

i have actually deleted all other nebula compressors, cupwise you are a genius :)

try the attack about 50ms, release 0.4, ratio 2:0 on drums. pull down the threshold and hear the attack of the drums get more and more punch. non of my non nebula VST compressors can do this. the punch they create sounds weak and artificial in comparison.

while compressing drums you get this kind of 'hovering' solid sound i have also never heard in software (apart from a little in a messed up way in other nebula comps)

for hard knee rhythmic compression this library dominates everything :D

playing with vocals i get an amazing clean sound on the hard knee, but couldn't dial in what i wanted with the soft knee. i am thinking maybe i like vocals soft knee only, more natural, anyone found any good vocal settings. so far closest to my liking has been:

attack 7ms, release 0.5, 1.5/1 ratio

but still maybe its too hard a knee... not that i am complaining, for percussion... :shock:

the soft knee library, which will be out soon, will have the regular soft knee with and without the ufe controls, and then a 2nd version of the 'soft ii' knee which will have fully variable attack/release. the soft ii comp in this current set is limited to 'fast' and 'slow', but the one in the next set has the full range, AND the 'UFE' controls. and i would probably agree that the soft knees are better for things like vocals. you might be able to use the soft ii comp in this current set, but with the limit of 'fast' and 'slow', it might be a matter of luck if those attack/release timings fit for a particular vocal track. i have some ideas for future updates that might make it work a little better in this regard..
thanks for all the great compliments (everybody)!

i wouldn't call it a dumb question. i probably should have put that in the update .txt and i think i just forgot to. but yes you just replace the old ones.

Are there any pertinent master settings I should be using to get the most out of this library?

Rate CNV, L freqd, etc., etc..

no. except if you want to be able to add up to a 6ms lookahead. then you need to go into 'mast' and adjust 'ahead' to 6ms. then click save and reload neb.

its a pretty impressive program :D

One thing I notice with Nebula comps is you have to be quite careful with the threshold...Im not sure if its the scale that is short - or the fact there arent really meters to take feedback from - but it can sometimes feel like it goes from 0 to 100 pretty quickly...

That said the way this treats transients is very analogue like. I have been testing versus my Drawmer 1968 on a drum group and the results are very similar...

Im also suprised by the 661 as a compressor - seems like quite a good unit.

Ill be looking fwd to the soft knee programs. The hard knee is quite aggressive. Soft option could be useful for a master bus job...
